Notice: A Warning about Recruitment Scams

It has come to our attention that there have been instances of fraudulent job offers purporting to be from John Holland. 

This type of fraud is normally conducted through online services such as fake job boards or through unsolicited emails. Such scams are intended to collect personal information for the purpose of identity theft, which may be used in further acts of fraud or to obtain money.

Things to watch for

  • Beware of emails from free email services, like Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail
  • Emails that are unsolicited or unexpected
  • Requests that ask you to provide payment to participate in the hiring process, or to provide sensitive personal information
  • There is often an insistence on urgency to complete hiring process

What should I do if I receive an unsolicited or unusual job offer / communications?

If you receive (or you hear of someone else receiving) an unsolicited or unusual job offer or communication about an employment opportunity with John Holland:

  • Treat the email with caution
  • Do not respond to the email
